Milly got a hot spot on her back - right where the tail starts - and I had to shave it to treat it. Well now she keeps wagging her tail, and it looks so weird, because there is no hair where the back meets the tail - it looks like this strangely shaped dinosaur like appendage when she wags it and I see the base of her unshaved tail moving. Just so you know, I only shaved the hot spot area, not her whole tail... but I guess those vertebrae move a lot, because it looks so strange!

I also am so grateful I learned about the wonders of Listerine from PointGold's thread a while back. The stuff is amazing! I keep it on hand in a spray bottle (diluted with water) and use that twice a day... hot spots are gone in a week, and between that and a little balg balm the hair grows back very quickly. With my magic Listerine I can pretty much stop a hot spot when it's a tiny, tiny scab... except for this time, because I was out of town.

I now use it on everything... great for hot spots, great when Milly is between baths, and I even used it after an evening with an up-do meant I had to put tons of hairspray in my hair, and the product buildup was creating dandruff. Yup, I'm like the dad from
My Big Fat Greek Wedding is with Windex. Listerine is my new favorite product! I killed a spider on the dashboard of my car, and forgot to clean it... a few days later I noticed the leather was starting to stain... a little Listerine, and the stain and spider guts came right out! I even use it at work to shield myself from the swine flu... don't know if it will work, but it seems stronger than purrell.

I'm thankful to Pointgold also. I used Listerene on Caue's last hot spot and it worked great and was far less messy than GoldBond powder. I keep a bottle in my dog medicine cabinet all the time now.

My old golden only had a couple her entire life but when she did, I used Sulfodene skin medication for dogs. Worked very well.
